The Roadies journey is about to begin from Tomorrow , i.e March 17th. The interesting part is that for the first time in Indian Television, a show has been premiered on the Big screen. Yes, you heard it right. The premiere was held in Delhi on the March 15th, which showcased the start of journey of Roadies 9. This season promises to be bigger and the start is grand in itself.

And it does not just end here. This is the first Indian reality Tv show to be shot in USA, says Rajiv. He claims that the audience would enjoy new culture since America is a unique place and everything is larger than life in that country. It will have a basketball task at San Francisco and  a man versus wild survival task at the Death Valley of California. The journey of ‘Roadies 9’ will kick start from Jaipur, then Delhi, and finally to the U.S.

This show promises a lot of adventure, back biting, plans & games, group-ism, over-the-top-drama, tasks, immunity, vote-outs, abusing & ultimately a winner with his/her Karizma bike. Ultimately, it will be a masala show ; living upto the name of reality shows. Only difference is that this one has major viewership of youth & children.

Let’s wait and watch if the show lives upto it’s promises of being the most grand season ever. Let’s see if the show makers are able to make it any different after so many seasons.

The episode telecasts on the television sets tomorrow at 7pm. So stay tuned & do let us know what’s your opinion regarding the first look at the journey of Roadies 9. 

Cheers to the spirit of Roadies 9 !!



Man vs. Wild might be staged but it’s brilliantly awesome!

The new season of this amazingly wild series “Man vs. Wild” premiered a week back with the host Bear Grylls in his usual but much more fascinating “Survivor” mode. The show has been described as the most entertaining and educational one, as it depicts some really basic but great survival tips in any situation that you can or cannot imagine. This intriguing series tells you what it takes to get out alive from some of the most dangerous places on earth and make it for a week of challenges in the sort of places you wouldn’t last a day without the right survival skills.

I find the series too addictive however would like parents to know that this enthralling adventure show depicts a trained survival expert escaping from dangerous natural locations. The host, Bear Grylls, is seen attempting dangerous acts while describing the reasons for his choices, as well as the proper technique for achieving success. He is never reckless, though at times he takes risks to demonstrate some particularly interesting acts. You might find Grylls naked occasionally, but his genitals are always blurred and the nudity is never sexual.

This show is the ultimate place where you can train yourself to survive in life threatening situations. I admit I would have a hard time eating what Grylls eats on the show and also wonder if he ever got sick, but then I think this is the reason he has a crew with him.

One more reason that I love this show is that Bear Grylls is a very charismatic person and he puts you into a totally new dimension. He is dynamic and has great energy that reflects on camera.

The show has received a little negative opinion lately basis the fact the situations shown are not so natural and they are made up/fake mostly. However the reviews have not been able to kill the dynamism and interest in the show.

Do you like the show despite the fact that it’s staged?
